Monkey Bread! Not just for monkeys

Have you ever wanted a fun way for people to eat food?? Try monkey bread!! Parties and gatherings won’t be the same with this. People can grab a piece and go.

Braided Bread

Braiding bread looks pretty fancy and impressive at any party. It looks difficult to make but is really easy and simple. Start with some pizza dough.

I came across a wonderful volunteer at my workplace who found out I write a food blog.  She asked if I wanted a sourdough starter. Of course I’ve been looking for a sourdough starter for a while and I was ready to take care of one. Her sourdough starter was a Carl Griffith 1847 Oregan…

Bear buns… (not bare bums)

I’ve always been fascinated with baking and one of the things I love to bake is bread.  Bread is so versatile.  It can sweet or savoury, filled with stuff or just by itself.     The bread recipe I decided to make was from the Company’s Coming Bread cookbook.  I chose ‘soft buns’ from this…
